HALLOWEEN HAZARDS By Dr. James Ivanoski, Optometrist at Madison Medical Eye Care with offices in Mequon & Saukville, Wisconsin

Halloween is such a great time of the year…the beautiful fall colors, the crispness in the air, the endless candy supply and of course the costumes.  With all the fun, however, there are some potential eye hazards to be aware of.

To add that extra something to your costume, you or your children may have considered decorative contact lenses. Because you can buy them over-the-counter or online, it may appear that a proper fitting or special care is not necessary. This could not be farther from the truth.  These “one size fits all” novelty contacts are not professionally fitted and could cause pain, infections, scratches or even permanent corneal scarring and vision loss.  It is important to realize that these costume products are being sold illegally and are not FDA-approved. By federal law ALL contact lenses are considered to be a medical device, only to be distributed by licensed eye care professionals after determining the proper fit.

Some Halloween activities can also lead to eye injuries.  What may seem like a harmless traditional game, like apple bobbing, could lead to scratches on the surface of the eye or infections from dirty water.  When putting together your children’s costumes, especially, be sure their side vision is not obstructed. Darting around in the dark is even more hazardous of you cannot see your surroundings well.

We at Madison Medical Eye Care hope you have more treats than tricks this Halloween!  We know you will all enjoy this holiday more by taking a little extra care to keep everyone safe from Halloween hazards.
